The return to school in the municipal education network of São Paulo will not be conditioned by the need to present proof of vaccination against Covid-19, informed the City Hall of the capital of São Paulo to CNN in a note.
“School units follow the Municipal Ordinance and already have the practice of requesting a vaccination card at the time of registration and re-enrollment, but failure to present the document does not prevent the student from attending the school unit”, says the statement.
In the same report, the City says that it will “encourage” the immunization of children between 5 and 11 years old, age group that is allowed to take the Pfizer vaccine, in different dosage, since last week.
“The city hall […] believes that people from São Paulo with children between the ages of 5 and 11 will join the campaign, as they have already demonstrated their trust in the vaccine and have contributed decisively to making the city the vaccine capital of the world”, completes the note.
With a return date scheduled for February 7, the more than 1 million students of the municipal network will still have to follow safety protocols against Covid-19, such as temperature measurement at the entrance of schools and the use of masks.
Gel alcohol will also remain available to students.
